Happy Monday

We had a great time at stamp camp on Saturday! We decided that since it was a smaller group we would work through lunch so we could enjoy the rest of the georgous day we were having. A couple of us went to lunch after and had a great time there too :)

This is one of the cards we did on Saturday.
We used Stem Silhouettes and inked it with markers (Certainly Celery and Rose Red) then misted with water to give it a softer look. The background on the Celery piece is Well Worn Words.

I have been scrapbooking every chance I get! I really should start working ahead on classes and September's Stamp Camp (so I won't be rushing at the last minute) but I am on a roll and I don't want to lose it. I think most scrapbookers would know what I mean (and probably anyone that crafts). When you stop for a while it is hard to get back into it.

I have to share this page because I had so much fun with it and it is my favorite of the ones I have done the last few days.
The "You" embellishment is from Hollee's demo at the yard sale last weekend. I knew I had to do a page about Emma with it.

The heart is chipboard from SU. I covered it with Dots and Dashes paper and then stamped "love" from Wonderful Words in black. The flourishes in the corners are from Doodle This, stamped in black and colored with a white gel pen.

This was my first time scanning and stitching together a layout. I'm not sure why there is a faint line going on an angle and it looks like a corner is lifted but it isn't really there in real life :)
